Contest Monday: Win a Copy of Diamond of Darkhold

Despite my promise yesterday for new posts, this week it is still time for Contest Monday. Our last Contest Monday in March features a prize of a brand new hardback by Jeanne DuPrau: The Diamond of Darkhold: The Fourth Book of Ember. I haven't read these books or seen the movie yet, so I can honestly say this is a book I know nothing about. It's time for it to find a new home with one of the series' fans.

About the Book (From "It’s been several months since Lina and Doon escaped the dying city of Ember and, along with the rest of their people, joined the town of Sparks. Now, struggling through the harsh winter aboveground, they find an unusual book. Torn up and missing most of its pages, it alludes to a mysterious device from before the Disaster, which they believe is still in Ember. Together, Lina and Doon must go back underground to retrieve what was lost and bring light to a dark world.In the fourth Book of Ember, bestselling author Jeanne DuPrau juxtaposes yet another action-packed adventure with powerful themes about hope, learning, and the search for truth."
